A Specific-Factors Model with Historical Application
In 1971, Ronald Jones examined a three-factor two-good model under the assumption that two of the factors are specific to one sector (a different sector for each such factor). Working independently, in the same year Paul Samuelson developed a similar framework. In this paper that specification is weakened, so that only one sector (agriculture) has a specific factor (land). When land is a separable input into food production, factor price-equalization can no longer be shown, but Stolper-Samuelson magnification is still observed, although it is weakened. An application to the abolition of the corn laws is discussed. Copyright Blackwell Publishing Ltd 2003..
